John Lennon lay in bed once. I am going to walk. The walk is the idea.'
When Harold Fry sets out one morning to post a letter to his dying friend Queenie he finds himself at the start of a journey that will have many beginnings, and for which he's entirely unprepared. This is a story about a huge leap of faith. It's about raw secrets tucked away behind net curtains and those moments of impulse and chance encounters that will transform us. It's about bravery and betrayal, love, loyalty and an unremarkable pair of yachting shoes. Above all, it is a book which will make your heart sing; a book about the power in how we touch each other's lives.

Journey to self discovery
If you're looking for a nice read I would recommend 'The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry' by Rachel Joyce. It's about Harold Fry who discovers that his old friend is in hospice and he wants to write a letter to say good bye. Instead of a quick trip down to the post office he decides to set on foot to deliver this letter to his old friend Queenie to save her life. Leaving his wife behind he goes on a journey of self discovery and along the way you meet all the people he met through each town and their story. This book takes you on a emotional roller coaster with laughter, sadness, loneliness and surprises. There are ups and downs, regrettable reflections on life but mainly it's a book about new beginnings and a story you will never forget.
